PSN & XBLA Players Get A Free Copy
Guardians Of Middle Earth, the Lord Of The Rings MOBA developed by Monolith, has finally been confirmed for a PC release after spending several months on PS3 and Xbox 360. Better yet, if you already own it, you'll can nab a free code for the base edition.
Promising "epic battles and heart-pounding action", Guardians Of Middle Earth allows players to assume the role of 36 Middle Earth characters, including the likes of Gandalf, Galadriel, Gollum and Elrond. It's a neat way of settling some of the 'who would win?' fantasy battles in 5v5 showdowns.
The PC version includes three modes, six maps and the Survival Mode that was previously only available as premium DLC. However, your choice of characters depends entirely on which edition you opt for. The £14.99 base version offers Gandalf, Galadriel, Thráin, Gollum, Hildifons and Legolas and their alternate skins, while the £60.99 Mithril Edition comes complete with all 36 playable Guardians, 36 alternate skins, the Mithril Guardian Relic and a buddy key.
Guardians Of Middle Earth releases on Steam and other digital distribution platforms on August 26th. Excitingly, players who have previously purchased Guardians of Middle-earth on PSN or Xbox Live "will be eligible to receive a PC download code for the base game." We'll be back with more details nearer the time.
